The Treatment: The Illuminate Facial at Exhale Spa
The Price: $225
Why It's Worth It: Consider this the bento box of facials — you get a little bit of everything. Beginning with a warming honey cleanser, the facial is followed by a rosemary-algea mud mask, a press-point targeted face massage, a citric acid mask, and, the grand finale, a light copper misting, which boasts magical properties including boosting your skin's overall elasticity. You'll leave with brighter, smoother, glowing skin.

The Treatment: The Snow Facial at Sonya Dakar
The Price: $250
Why It's Worth It: Who says it never snows in L.A.? Iconic skin-care guru Sonya Dakar's Snow Facial is literally freezing and boasts her magical, all-natural Snowflake concentrate, which is often referred to as being a natural alternative to Botox. The result promises to instantly and dramatically decrease puffy, tired skin, as well as the dark circles that are pretty much permanently under our eyes.

The Treatment: Body Gelato at The Spa at Pelican Hill
The Price: $200
Why It's Worth It: Forget farm-to-table — today, we're all about farm-to-body. Using seasonal, local ingredients (i.e. pomegranate in the winter) and natural botanicals, this treatment swears to leave you with crazy-soft skin from head to toe.
The Spa at Pelican Hill, 22701 Pelican Hill Road (at Newport Coast Drive); 855-315-8214.

The Treatment: Diamond Manicure & Pedicure at the Spa at Beverly Wilshire, A Four Seasons Hotel
The Price:$280
Why It's Worth It: Ditch the Purell and Aquaphor! It's time to clean and moisturize your hands with diamonds instead — actually. The treatment uses "a diamond-dust mud polish that purifies and illuminates the skin." Sounds wildly decadent, but, trust, this works and will leave you with glowing hands and feet.
Spa at Beverly Wilshire, A Four Seasons Hotel, 9500 Wilshire Boulevard (at North Rodeo Drive); 310-275-5200.

The Treatment: Red Carpet Ready at the The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Los Angeles
The Price: $450
Why It's Worth It: At this point, we get if the whole red carpet-themed beauty products and services seem a little cliché. That said, you can't always judge a treatment by its title. Regardless of whether your getting ready for a friends wedding or The Oscars, this multi-step treatment is literally geared to making you look crazy-good. From a slimming body wrap to unbeatable hair styling, get this bad boy if you're looking for that wow-factor.
The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Los Angeles, 900 West Olympic Boulevard (near South Figueroa Street); 213-743-8800.

The Treatment:The Nirvana Massage at Ciel Spa at SLS Hotel
The Price:
$330 for 60 minutes
Why It's Worth It: Think of this as the massage version of synchronized swimming. In other words, not one, but, two massage therapists "simultaneously perform a choreographed massage, inducing a state of profound relaxation." Um, yes please.
Ciel Spa at SLS Hotel, 465 S La Cienega Boulevard (near San Vicente Boulevard); 310-247-0400.
